Shohei Ohtani shows us that Tempe Diablo Stadium can’t contain his sweet, smooth swing

Do you like batting practice footage that shows Shohei Ohtani launching ridiculously long home run blasts? Well, you’re in luck! (Also, a bonus clip of Ohtani behind the scenes during his photo day shoot, for all you Ohtani fanatics out there!)

Our main man in Tempe, ol’ Rex “Scoop” Clevinger, took some absolutely badass video yesterday at Angels practice. If you follow Halos Heaven along on Facebook, you may have seen it, or perhaps you saw the links on our Twitter feed, but those can easily get lost in the fray or unintentionally ignored.

Never fear, though, because we’ve got Rex’s stunning videos all in one place for your to play on repeat, including watching Shohei Ohtani literally wowing his teammates and Halos staff members with some deep, deep bombs. You probably heard about his bp homer that went over the catcher’s eye, as well as another big blast from the 23-year-old beast, and these vids show you the incredibly sweet and smooth swing he put on those pitches that launched them into oblivion.

2018 is going to be fun, Angels fans.

(PS...come for the dope batting practice footy, but stay for some behind the scenes looks at Ohtani during his photo day shoot)
